This type of completion aims at speeding up selection of files, folders, etc. The dialog used for that purpose is called rather often, for example when adding a new SDK in the Project Structure dialog , or specifying an application server home directory. .
To automatically complete a path
- Open the Select Path dialog by doing one of the following:
- Make sure that the Path field is visible. If the field is hidden, click the Show path link.
- Start typing a path. IntelliJ IDEA suggests a drop-down list where you can quickly find the needed directory. As you type, the suggestion list shrinks to show the matching paths only. You can also press Ctrl+Space to show the suggestion list.
- Select completion from the list.
